CxO Connect


for HCL Connections and HCL Connections Engagement Center

Improve communication between C-Level and employees!

Bring top management and employees in contact. The abbreviation CxO summarizes the entirety of “chief title”, whereby the “x” is to be understood as a placeholder for the respective position.

CxO Connect enables a direct communication channel between the Executive Board and employees and thus serves as a voice for the Executive Board members as well as the employees. The motto is: Even the smallest voice is heard. CxO Connect makes the management level more accessible. Employees have the opportunity to participate directly and communication with the board is simplified.

The users post in their own name or in the form of anonymous posts on the corresponding CxO Connect page. The users have the opportunity to rate and comment on posts. The top rated entries will then be forwarded to the addressees at the end of the month for answering.

In the comments, users have the opportunity to discuss. The published answers can then be further discussed. The users themselves decide by their voting which contributions are relevant and should be answered. In other words, if an employee has something important to say and other users agree, then the board must respond.

Integrate CxO Connect into your existing HCL Connections / HCL Connections Engagement Center environment

CxO Connect is easy to install and integrate into your existing environment. The integration takes place via HCL Connections (formerly IBM Connections) and HCL Connections Engagement Center (formerly IBM Connections Engagement Center, ICEC). TIMETOACT relies on technologies like Node.js and MongoDB in the backend. CxO Connect will be integrated into your intranet as an independent HCL Connections Engagement Center page. Authentication happens through HCL Connections.

You can use CxO Connect both on premise and as SaaS. Your advantage is that you do not have to worry about the operation and TIMETOACT seamlessly integrates CxO Connect.

You can independently maintain and change content-related adjustments (recipients, new subject areas, etc.). The design of CxO-Connect can be adapted to your HCL Connections Engagement Center design.
